report for our continuing coverage of super tuesday elections. joining us is michael steel and former republican presidential candidate himself herman cain. now, i want to begin with my friend herman cain. >> hello, larry. sfoo hello, herman. supporting newt gingrich, which i totally respect, and i totally respect newt's issues, herman, and i totally respect you, but there is no electability. we're going to find that out after tonight. my big kwu to you, herman cain, is when you regroup, what are you looking for for issues and who will you support in the next round? >> the next round, larry, isn't going to come early. it's going to come a lot later than most people realize, and i beg to differ with you. i think newt is electable, and here's why. i have spent the last several days as well as a week ago actually on the ground talking to people campaigning with newt, campaigning with his daughter, and sometimes giving speeches, and there's a different level of enthusiasm that's growing for newt that i don't think is being captured in some of the polls. for example, he has already been de
needs to channel the one line zingers of a michael steele who is joining us now from washington. seriously, michael steele, what is going on with mitt rop any, will he come out as a better version of the ipad? >> i don't know, it's been six years in the making of this thing, i don't know. the problem is, look, this is the guy, this is who he is. so, instead of trying to package him into ronald reagan or to bill clinton or some other, you know, bigger than life political figure, let him be himself, so he may be a little uncomfortable standing on the stage. build around that. make that part of the theme about him so people feel comfortable with that instead of judging him against other candidates or likely can dade d like a chris christie, make the argument for your candidacy, but most importantly for your future administration, because that is what everyone, including the base is looking to hear. that is what will move them toward you. so, until you -- until they get comfortable with mitt romney, his team around him and stop worrying about the gaffes and the foot in mouth disease
former rnc chair, michael steele. the host of msnbc's "way too early," sir william geist of vanderbilt, the indubitable patricia murphy of the daily beast and citizen jane politics, and the lovely "new york daily news" very own columnist, s.e. cupp. the senate voted 51 to 48 against a measure that would have repealed president obama's contraception mandate, a closer vote than i thought it would be, actually. unsurprisingly, those running for president and specifically we'll talk about mitt romney, have had a tricky time with this. mitt romney yesterday saying for about an hour that he did not support the blunt amendment, and then reversing course abruptly, an hour or so later, saying he would. it is a classic mitt romney move, is it not, michael steele? >> why me? >> we give you the softballs. >> i prefer notorious, probably will be after this answer. but, no, i think, yeah, for me, i think it was an honest moment, to be quite frank about it. and you know, that's what happens in politics. i've been there! you know, when you say that you speak truth -- or at least how you
with michael steele, former republican national committee chairman. he talks about the stakes for the remaining candidateses and assesses the republican party strategy going into the general election. this is about an hour and 20 minutes. >> in c-span's washington classroom we're joined by students from george mason university in fairfax, virginia, and the washington center here in washington, d.c. and joining us here in our studios, michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee, former lieutenant governor of maryland. appreciate you being with us. >> great to be with you, steve. >> there could be a couple story lines coming out of tomorrow's super tuesday vote. what are they? >> well, there are actually more than a couple when you really break it it down. you've got the whole obvious, the mitt romney line which is winning big in places like ohio, for example. and winning at least one of the southern states to really kind of solidify for himself the argument that he is the relevant player to go forward who can take on the from the prt, number one. number two, that the ba
," sam stein. former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele, kelly o'donnell. in new york, willie geist and msnbc contributor, mike barnicle. guys, a lot to talk about. willie, the supreme court case. unbelievable poll coming out not only on the health care law and what americans want, but also in afghanistan. americans have some very clear cut decisions, made up their mind on health care and the war. >> the question of the war, "the new york times" poll, it's not just the number, which is 7 and 10 americans think we should not be fighting in afghanistan. itis the jump. it's up 16 points. there's not a lot of mystery to it. you can walk through the terrible things happening with staff sergeant robert bales, the burning of the koran and where nato officers and troops have been shot by soldiers. >> yeah. >> there's a slow, steady beat of the american people saying we ought not be there anymore. >> sam stein, you look at the cbs poll that came out, "the new york times" poll that came out yesterday. the first case of the argument. it was fascinating. the s
with mitt romney's authenticity problem. he's certainly got one. michael steele was chairman of the republican national committee for years and howard fineman is the editorial director of "the huffington post" which has only been around for years. both are msnbc political analysts. gentlemen, let's start with the pro. let me ask you about this guy. howard, what was the great quote of the day from romney? >> he was talking to a birmingham, alabama, radio station about his prospects in the south, and he said, i realize i'm playing a bit of an away game. that was very sporty. that was kind of sporting of him. >> in other words, when he goes south, it's not really him. >> it's a bit of an away game. it's giving away all too honestly what his problem is. this is a southern base, modern republican party. >> there you go again. >> why does he always do this? >> i don't know. he's not feeling it. there's something about him that the switch turns off, the mouth opens, and this comes out. i don't know how you now go into mississippi, alabama, kansas, and make the argument that i'm one
. >> schieffer: do you have any regrets now looking back? michael steele the previous rnc chairman who was the one who changed this to proportional which means if you win a primary you don't get all the delegates. you get a number and percentage to the amount of votes that you got. do you think it would be better to go back to the old way? >> you know, the grass is always greener. the fact is for a long time republicans said we have a process that allows a frontrunner to wrap up too soon. we're done by march. we need a longer process that allows for people to rise and challenge the frontrunner. that's what we have now. i do think that whoever emerges at the end of the day again i think it will be governor romney will be stronger as a result of that process. but there's no doubt there are a lot of folks saying, boy, i wish we had a nominee who could take the case to president obama. there is some second-guessing. but i actually think that this process is going to be good for us. >> schieffer: rich, let me ask you the question that i asked reince preibus just now. would it be best if new
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we
't know the answers to them. the brokered convention, i i mean, even michael steel that was saying on friday he thought that's where we were going to end up wrrn gingrich may have his own motives for pushing for something like that, and the extraordinary moment, though, but it's -- i don't think for gingrich or any of the pundits it's about him winning the nomination, but what is the back burn that may be machiavellian going on here. >> every juniorist at this table started to salivate when you use that term. >> absolutely. >> everyone in the press wants one. >> secondly, you know, if newt gingrich is not winning anything and he can't even win osd of his home state of georgia, why doesn't the press just ignore him or minimize mihm or not pay attention to them as opposed this constant psychoanalyze of why newt refuses to get out of the race, and his ego. >> he is still collecting dell fwats. this does affect romney's total and could affect that brokered convention. >> i want you to give us your analytic take on why there is this -- i should say obsession among journalists with what
are the first three we will hear from. bring in the former chairman of the republican party, michael steel. nice to see you, mr. chairman. >> hey, rachel, what's up? >> i saw you mixing it up with joan walsh about the politics of the rush limbaugh comments about sandra fluke, the nature of his apology, mitt romney's inability to say woe do anything other than use different language there you seem to think this is sometime a real fight about contraception that's worth having between the parties. do you think that this is what republicans and democrats ought to be fighting for, putting republicans in a good stead heading to november? >> no, i don't. that is exactly the point. i think all of this could have been nipped in the bud early, early on for the leadership of the party, particularly those candidates running for president, to -- you know, without hesitation just rebuke the profanity of the comments. to make it clear this is not a reflection of who we are as conservatives what we stand for as a broadly based republican party and i thought again, one of those missed opportunity for the leaders
convention. michael steele said that himself. we are going to sit back and watch the drama. >> you make it a fight to sunday morning. thank you both. >> there are new fears that the rising price of gas could pose a serious threat to the recovery of the u.s. economy. the average national gas price is energy $4 a gallon and some economists say it could hit $5 and cause an immediate downturn. brenda buttner is here. >> hi. >> it impacts what you pay to transport the goods and that raises the price of the goods. so how severe is the impact? >> we have been luck thetime, as opposed to between the 08, there are a couple of thairngs different. number 1, some energy sources have been going down. we have seen natural gas falling. so consumers haven't been hit as hard by the rising price of gas. and they have been saving more as unemployment has been going down a bit. but we are right at a tipping point. >> you hit a key point. that's hiring from small businesses. some surveys are showing that small businesses are getting hit and they are about to start rising prices prices and they're about -- t
. >> michael steel, a happy, happy man. i think he's the only one who is happy. no, haley barbour was saying this is not the worst thing in the world to have a contesting convention. he said, i don't think anyone in require thought rind -- right mind has thought this is good. >> maybe if he had never run before. but he's been out there, you don't need to learn fen who he is and allow for the mistakes. >> i think mitt romney is not the greatest can dat in the world. he's got skills as a businessman and other skills but i think being a political candidate is not necessarily he highest among them. some people get better after time, i don't think he does. >> it's like a programming note behind the scenes, there are certain operatives, certain officials when they say something, you really do have to listen. i put haley barbour in that category, put karl rove in that category, ed gillespie, who ran the reform n.c. an ran the bush white house for a while. they know so many people and are in constant contact with people across the country, it's tons of expertise, a mirror of what happened throughout
at "washington post" national political correspondent, dance all over but rnc chairman, michael steele. >> that began with a simple point. you've been writing about tomorrow being a pivotal point. how so quiet >> i think the importance of super tuesday this this year is that we will really care for the first time an indication of aa, how long this fight actually one. we know will go on for sometime, but the question is how long? and the question is, would there be any candidate who's been challenging governor romney who comes out of super day with a realistic chance of winning the nomination? we've had ups and downs, different people rising and falling. romney has been kind of a savvy competitor, the person to be. but after tomorrow we're going to have a better sense of the totality of this phrase in the degree to which governor romney has the advantage of the rest of the field. >> dan, we've been touching on a number of issues with the student including the money, organization, infrastructure, what is the worst possible case for it to marinate for someone like a mitt romney? can he ge
robust. because we're seeing some concerning data in terms of steel production that would indicate otherwise. >> michael, let's talk about investing, given all of this, that we're going to see next week. you favor qualcomm and gold right now. are these long-term plays? >> qualcomm is a short-term as well as a long-term pad. i think as the ipad 3 comes out next week and we have the whole new version of the apple frenzy, it will affect it in the right space. the sell-off that happened this week was quite interesting. gold rallied up to only being down 5%. i think that gold is going to continue to be a play, because inflation is eventually coming around the corner. if i could make the comment about greece, i'm of the belief that greece is just really in a slow default right now. the greece problem is really not solved. i think they're trying to throw trial balloons out so eventually greece defaults. as for china, as you know i'm in asia quite often, i think china is going to avoid a hard landing. you are already starting to see them adjust bank requirements. they'll probably put a sti
back machine, at one point, hyman roth told michael corelone the combined enterprise had surpassed u.s. steel, back then that was a big deal. these days u.s. steel is a $4 billion company versus apple's $545 billion. at the time we had two leaders of relatively dubious note. chevron's on the eve of the epic run and total collapse in oil, almost $100. and alcoa, holy cow, alcoa $40 then. that was just when china decided to flood the world with aluminum and just when the cost of making the stuff spiked, collapse in profit margins, collapse in stock. in other words, the last time we were at these levels, the dow was being led not by the u.s., but chinese growth. now the dow has a whole new crop of leaders. jpmorgan, arguably the premiere banking institution on earth. >> buy, buy, buy! >> ibm, a spectacularly well run international consulting company tremendous intellectual capital, caterpillar, which may be levered to china, may have an ace in the hole with the u.s. market given that the last time the average was twice as much business in this country as it's doing now. it's the subtext
come back to steel stocks this month, including today. u.s. steel's 6% rally was the best among the s&p 500 stocks. despite today's rally, u.s. steel shares are down 40% over the past year. we also some after the close optimism from fashion designer michael kors. this company just came public late last year. shares were down 2% during the regular session, but were 4% stronger after the bell. that came after the company raised its quarterly earnings guidance even though it cautioned its revenue may be disappointing. it blames that on problems with a new distribution center delaying deliveries. the company also is taking advantage of its share price more than doubling since its initial offering. it is looking to sell more stock according to the "wall street journal." meantime, retailer kohl's fell 3% on heavy volume. in its annual report it says it will be less aggressive passing along higher costs to shoppers, hurting its profit margins. while the stock indices are running higher, so are bond interest rates, meaning bond prices have been moving lower. bond interest rates and prices mov
